Immuno – New Methods for cancer immunotherapy
The main goal of this project is to develop SINTEF’s competence within biotechnology and drug discovery/development to also include immunotherapies.
Automatized follow-up of safety instrumented systems
The project will develop specifications that simplify and automate design and operation of safety systems in the petroleum industry. The industry partners will, based on the R&D activities in the project, develop new solutions for collecting, analyzing and sharing failure data of safety systems during design and operation.
3D-PIEZO – Lead-free piezoelectric devices by additive manufacturing (3D printing and multilayer)
The 3D-PIEZO project aims to develop a manufacturing chain for 3D printing and multilayer lamination of piezoelectric elements for ultrasonics and other applications. The project will apply lead-free (Pb-free) high performance piezoelectric ceramic materials. SINTEF is working closely with two small companies: Ceramic Powder Technology AS, a Norwegian producer of advanced ceramic oxide powders, and Cerhum S.A., a Belgian specialist in 3D printing of ceramics
Decision support for fishing vessels based on marine ecosystem models and fishery data
FishGuider will increase the income and reduce the costs related to catch of pelagic fish species such as herring, cod and capelin. This will be achieved by development and validation of new theory for fish migration and a novel guidance system for fishing companies.
At SINTEF we have started a strategic project to investigate the possibilities and application areas of quantum computing.
BioCarbUp - Optimising the biocarbon value chain for a sustainable metallurgical industry
In the project BioCarb+ (Enabling the biocarbon value chain for energy); 2014-17, a huge effort was made towards studying the biocarbon value chain and its different value chain elements with respect to improvement possibilities while satisfying end-user demands. BioCarb+ was a broad competence buildings project, focussing both on energy applications and biocarbon as a reductant in metallurgical processes. Now a new competence building project, Optimising the biocarbon value chain for a sustainable metallurgical industry (BioCarbUp), is starting and will run for 4 years. This time the focus is entirely on biocarbon as reductant in metallurgical industries.
The European energy system is now entering a transition to a low-carbon future in accordance with the COP21 agreements and European Union targets and objectives set for 2020, 2030 and 2050.
The Digital Worker ERA will focus on exposure, physical and organisational factors for workers in the petroleum industry. We will build new knowledge on real-time exposure assessment of chemical, physiological strain and the human factors elements of using such assessments in-situ.
UnWarp: Understanding warping corrugated board with machine learning
Warped cardboard is a major quality issue in the production of corrugated cardboard. It reduces the productivity in the converting units, causes reduced quality on the final product, and increases waste. In UnWarp we are using machine learning to understand when the cardboard becomes warped in and provide guidelines for minimising the warp.
